Go Francis! Go Francis! Go Francis!

Yo Mama, Fukuyama! Way to go, Francis! In this incredibly clear and cogent little manifesto in the NYT, Francis Fukuyama has singlehandedly killed neoconservatism, (of which he was, until recently, a pretty important acolyte).
Regular mortals like you and I can kvetch about Iraq, and Bush and Blibliblublu all we want, but it's good when influential thinkers like Francis come out and express their discontent in public, clearly and emphatically. I mean, if Francis says so...
I felt good reading this piece. It somehow makes one feel vindicated.
I love it when he says:
"Neoconservatism, as both a political symbol and a body of thought, has evolved into something I can no longer support".

See? There's a really smart guy who also doesn't like your stupid, dangerous, irresponsible, destructive policy, and he is one of yours!
